Tawny’s Bio

My name is Dru, and I am a 28 year old female, with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology (December 2009). I am seeking a live-out nanny/babysitter position with fun and energetic children. I have an abundant amount of experience with kids, having been a swimming lesson instructor to all ages in excess of 5 years, in addition to work as an assistant coach of a summer league swimming team with over 200 children ranging from 3-18 years of age. In college, I had the opportunity to work as a teacher's aide at the Early Childhood Center on my college campus as part of my experiential learning requirement, and I had a delightful time! Additionally, I have worked as a teacher and counselor for Belvoir Terrace Fine and Performing Arts Camp for Girls, in the Berkshires; it was so much fun to work with girls from all over the country, with such a vast array of interests and talents!

I absolutely love kids! I am the eldest of 5 children (the youngest is 9 years old), and have been "trained" well! I do have experience with multiples, infants and toddlers, as well as older children. I am a slight perfectionist who is not afraid to get my hands dirty. If there is cleaning, laundry, dishes to be done, they will be, within reason. Parents appreciate my organization, as well as my methods of interaction with kids, and beg me to babysit whenever available. It can't hurt that I have a near-endless store of energy and am essentially a child at heart! My public and private education background has provided me with enough experience to offer ample help with any schoolwork your children might incur. Weather-permitting, outdoor activities and trips could be planned for the kids to enjoy. They would also have plenty of opportunities for arts and craft projects and things of that nature, if that so interests them. I am a strong believer in stimulating young minds with plenty of book reading and the like.

In addition to typical childcare and moderate housecleaning, I am a great driver with a Louisiana driver's license and excellent driving record. All CPR and First Aid certifications are current. I am a nonsmoker, and would be happy to undergo a background check. Additionally, I am a legal U.S. citizen with impeccable English (verbal and written), as well as minor Spanish (approximately 2 year of Spanish education).
